Waterco set to Present at AUE Conference 2019

22nd Jul 2019

Waterco are proud to announce that they will be presenting at the AUE Conference of 2019.  The conference is being held from the 4th September to Friday 6th September, 2019 at the Lancaster University. The focus of this years event will be “The Resilient Estate: Engineering Continuity in Higher Education.”

Both Michael Spray and Keith Stoops will be presenting during the second day of the conference, on Thursday 5th September. The session will cover two case studies, including how Waterco worked with Keele University to produce a Water Management Plan among other tasks. There will also be a workshop following the talk, looking at ways of reducing leakage and improve monitoring and resilience at campus universities. Please see below for the full session synopsis:

Ageing water networks are often a source of leakage; can pose a risk to the day to day operations of the campus and may also limit future development. Waterco have worked closely with the Keele University who have proactively taken steps to address the concerns with their network to produce a Water Management Plan to shape and manage their future water network to ensure efficient operation with added resilience. A significant reduction in leakage and cost has been achieved as well as many other improvements. Another case study covers water, drainage and flooding on one site. The presentation will be followed by a workshop to provide takeaway actions to reduce leakage and improve monitoring and resilience at campus universities.
